Taking a break from our usual outfit posts and reviews, we are going at a different direction by listing down a few things which we think no self respecting fashionista should have in his or her closet.
No. 1 on the list: Denim Skirts.
Yes, we know that you are a child of the 90’s. And yes, we know how popular it was back then and you wore them every day as a teenager. But it isn’t the 90’s now, nor will it ever be. The denim skirt never will, and never should be back in fashion unless you want to look like soccer mom clinging on to the very last of your youth. In which case we will recommend you pair it with jelly bracelets, cropped spandex leggings and sneakers. If you want to look tacky wearing a denim skirt, you might as well go all out.
No. 2: Platform Sandals
There is really no acceptable scenerio of wearing them anywhere, unless in the privacy of your own pool or even to the beach. Even then they’d still be considered questionable at best. They were popular for a brief period in the late 90’s. But so were spandex bodysuits and Britney Spears. If something this ugly only manages a brief period of popularity in the 90’s, you would know better than to wear them now. Girls, there are so many choices of footwear now, why, just why must you wear these? And most of all, why on your wedding day?
No. 3: Camouflage print
Of everything on this list, only camouflage clothing has truly made me want to bury my head in my hands and cry for mankind. Yes, I feel this strongly about it. Unless you are one of the Destiny’s child or Cammy of street fighter, just don’t go anywhere near this, please, for the love of god and everything that is holy. It doesn’t make you a tough grrrl, neither does it signify that you are a survivor. If I see anyone wearing this on the streets I will pull out a hunting rifle and put it out of its misery.
I might or might not have shed a tear when I saw this while searching for pictures.
No. 4: Leggings worn as pants.
Face it. You have heard that it was unacceptable tens and thousands of times. So please just stop thinking that they are a good substitute for pants. They are too thin to conceal unsightly visible panty lines. They often have an ugly seam running up your butt, and they are often so tight that it gives you cameltoes. If you insist on wearing them, at least have the decency to wear a top long enough to cover your ass.
No. 5: Pixie Skirts
I hate to be the one breaking this to you, but they are the singular piece of clothing I hate the most. You don’t look like a fairy wearing one. It’s tacky, out dated and people will assume the same about you when you wear this. The only time I have seen them worn is on Sabrina the Teenage Witch and ladies of unsavoury reputation. I think that ought to say it all.
What article of clothing / trend do you think should never be worn and wish to single-handedly eradicate from the face of earth?
